The squirrels were busy today gathering. I watched them running up and down the old walnut tree. I wondered if this was another sign that the cold was coming soon. They kept to their task way into the day. On my walk I observed the neighbor’s yard filled with Christmas decorations, but the air smelled of early fall. It seemed too soon for the holiday, but really only 3 weeks away. I thought of those in New Jersey and New York and areas where Sandy fell hard on them. How many are still homeless, where will their Christmas be? I said a silent prayer for them all. In this season of Peace On Earth..I do hope we find it soon. Looking forward to 2013 being a good year for us all.
